Live Here in First Year
Residence at Western isn’t just a place; it’s an experience where you’ll feel a sense of belonging like you’ve never felt before. Be a part of a community where you’ll have exclusive access to incredible events, support services and academic programming—all designed to help you succeed in your first year here. Residence is guaranteed to incoming first-year students, as long as you meet our eligibility requirements. Even if you live close to campus, you won't want to miss out!

We’ve got the largest orientation week in Canada, and then your residence experience begins. From petting zoos in your lobby, to ferris wheels outside your front door, your building will be bustling with events all year long. You won’t find this experience anywhere else, but if you’re still not sure, read below for more reasons why you should experience residence life!
